spring has sprung

Yep, that seems to be the case. Hope you'all are ready, because biking is near upon us, the fisher's have been out and about, the dogs are getting restless, and, well, that is just what seems to be what the weather gods and mom nature has in store. Certainly does not mean it will not snow again, as i feel confident we will have a powder day or two to go. But the valley seems well on its way to open up and get going on other activities.
I usually start out March hoping for more winter, and if it comes, remaining a ski bum first and foremost. However, if it does not, and spring pushes forward, I start to really look forward to getting back on the bike and back into the garden. And this year will be different out in the garden. (Like everyone else into gardening, I say this every year. But this is the one)

In the meantime, there is still plenty of snow in the mountains. The problem is the conditions are only so-so. The avalanche danger seems to be coming down, but the different layers out there make the skiing not so good, and the chances of big slides remains high enough to keep most of not so hugely ambitious-home. So what am I doing? Heading to Canada, where snowfall continues and area skiing is sure to be great, but we are going backcountry, and the avy conditions are High! And with more snow on the way, not sure how things will pan out, but we have a great group of friends from different posts, so the party will rage.

Hope some of you are finding the goods, and if you are, maybe let a few of us know!
